Welcome to Shade Tree Aussies


Toy, Miniature and Standard Australian Shepherds.
Aussies are intelligent, versatile, and highly trainable.
They are outstanding loyal companions that excel at Herding, Tracking or Agility events.
Here at Shade Tree Aussies we train a few, breed a few, show a few, and sell a few.


Shade Tree Aussies are affectionately known as STA's. 

So we finally registered STA as our kennel name.

So, when you see STA on a pedigree you will know they came from

Shade Tree Aussies.


We are pleased to announce that Dozer took

Best In Show at the ASDR Bluegrass Showdown


Shade Tree Aussies - Toy Miniature and Standard Australian Shepherds

We want to thank Jessica for handling Dozer.



Pedigree indicates what the animal should be.
Conformation indicates what the animal appears to be.
But performance indicates what the animal actually is.
